User created a simple out of box sharepoint approval workflow. User add a document in library. After that when try to start workflow manually, there is error with message as the workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information. Workflow was working fine till few days back but not currently.

Solution

I found that someone has changed the workflow settings. They enabled the checkbox under workflow settings “Enable Content Approval” which was not before.

Uncheck the boxEnable Content Approval” option present in workflow settings. Then workflow started working fine for me.
